CORONA, CA – March 3, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Lucas Oil, who has a long history with drag racing, has expanded their commitment to the sport with additional coverage on MAVTV Motorsports Network. MAVTV announced today it will be the broadcast home for the Mid-West Drag Racing Series in 2021 and that Lucas Oil will be the “Official Oil” for the series.
The Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service has become the premier regional drag racing tour in America. This year, all eight events will be shown live on the new MAVTV Plus platform.
“Because of our love of drag racing, Lucas Oil has long been associated with the sport,” said Morgan Lucas, President of Lucas Oil Products. “We wanted to expand our support of drag racing and I felt that the Mid-West Series is a perfect fit. The passion from the series’ racers and the action that is produced is exciting and we are looking forward to bringing this brand of racing to a new audience this year.”
The Mid-West Drag Racing Series will feature eight events at six different tracks in five different states. The 1/8 mile drag racing competition spotlights many different classes of cars, including Top Alcohol Funny Car, Pro Mods, and Top Dragster.
“This is a dream come true and something I have imagined in my mind since the beginning of the series (2017),” said Keith Haney, Founder of the Mid-West Drag Racing Series. “I’ve always wanted to spotlight the amazing racers in this series. I think fans deserve to meet these racers and what better platform than MAVTV and its networks. The race tracks, marketing partners and everyone knows this series is all about helping the sport stay healthy and Lucas Oil does so much to ensure that happens.”
Three events from the Mid-West Drag Racing Series will also receive enhanced tape-delayed airings on MAVTV for a scheduled total of six network television programs.
The season opener for the Mid-West Drag Racing Series is on March 19-20 at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, TX. Friday’s qualifying and Saturday’s elimination rounds will be shown live on MAVTV Plus.
